I correct spelling entries in old journals, I know the Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock by heart and I’ve never dyed my hair. I’m an individual and couples therapist and I feel so lucky to have a job that blends my passion for helping people with my love for making good money and not working a lot of hours. :) In all seriousness though, I really love what I do and all the more because not only is it challenging and rewarding but it also creates a lifestyle I love. My career is very important to me and I’m hoping to open my own practice in the near future.
On a given night you’re likely to find me watching Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman (anybody else love theoretical physics?) or playing beach volleyball until all hours of the evening at the lighted courts at the pier. My typical Saturday usually involves playing volleyball till my legs hurt, swimming in the ocean, a double double from In-N-Out and hot tubbing with friends. Happiness.
Okay, don’t write me off because what I am about to say is going to sound really stupid: I consider hot tubbing an important part of my life. Go ahead. Laugh. But it’s true. I can’t quite explain it but something about sitting in hot water after a long work out makes me really happy.
As you may have gathered (and if you haven’t, either you’re really dense or I have grossly misappraised my writing ability), I’m fairly sarcastic and playful and I love to laugh. But although in many ways I don’t take myself very seriously, I’m always reflecting on how to better myself and working hard to achieve my goals. Science fascinates me to no end and I can’t get enough of learning about neuroscience and physics. I love adventures and being outdoors and I’m pretty competitive when it comes to sports (I drop a lot of f-bombs when I mess up, I’m just warning you). I sing all the time, I love to write and I definitely have a creative side (even though I probably sound like a total meathead). I’m very affectionate and massages are one of my favorite parts of being in a relationship (gosh, do I sound totally vapid?). (I love parentheses). I want someone who challenges me, makes me laugh, supports me and isn’t afraid to call me out. I want to be with someone who knows himself well and who wants to share a similar active lifestyle that involves lots of swimming, hiking, being outside, hot tubs and sports.
I value originality and self-awareness and I hate clichés. I see time as my most valuable commodity so unless you blow my socks off with your profile or first email I probably won’t write you. Up to the challenge? No pressure. :)
Bonus points if you can name the song in my headline without Googling it.
